Bills CB White calls Gronk a "dirty player"

New England Patriots Tight End Rob Gronkowski Suspended One Game for Late Hit on Bills Cornerback Tre'Davious White Troy Vincent: NFL to look at video reviews for targeting

"I'm laying there he snuck me, my back turned. People don't think of that when they just react".

Buffalo Bills corner Tre'Davious White is out of concussion protocol, but isn't happy with the punishment for the hit that put him there in the first place. Dirty shot, so what does that make him?

White said today that Gronkowski's hit was unsafe and could have caused a severe injury, and that the NFL's suspsension was woefully inadequate.

"I don't believe in shots like that", Gronkowski said, according to ESPN.

Troy Vincent, the league's football operations chief, says it is on the agenda to discuss with the competition committee and the players' union after the season.

Since that time, the All-Pro tight end has been suspended for one game (pending appeal) but that has not stopped those around the National Football League from weighing in on what exactly he did on the field.

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds, Gronkowski used his full force in landing on White, who is 5-foot-11 and 192 pounds. "I'm glad I had my mouthpiece in. Awful headache. It is what it is, man, he did what he wanted to do". Gronkowski was assessed an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for the hit, but was not ejected from the game.

"Just want to apologize to Tre'Davious White".

White didn't want to hear it. I mean, there was a lot of frustration and I was just really frustrated at that moment and it just happened naturally through emotions.

Asked if those comments meant anything to White, he said, "No".

It's not lost on him that the Bills travel to play New England on December 24. "We'll see what happens".
